Ghirardelli Box favors

Hello, Stampies! I'm just so excited to show you this easy box I made in a jiffy! I cased this from "Mocha Memories" and I did a little bit of enhancement to the box!

Step 1: They call this box the 2-4-6-8 box where I used a 8-1/2" x 3-11/16" cardstock. Scored it crosswise at 2", 4", 6" and 8" then lengthwise at 1" and 2".

Step 2: I know you'll be asking, further, how to make these boxes. As I have given the initial cutting and scoring measurements, cut the part of the cardstock to come up with the illustration below:

Step 3: Assemble the box and you'll be needing 3 Ghirardelli Squares to hold the box together while you build the rest. Also, you'll be needing(two)2-1/2" CS squares (punch with ticket corners) for the top and bottom box cover.

Step 4: The DSP and Belly Band - You'll be needing a 2-1/4" DSP square (cut also with ticket corners) and adhere on top of the box. Then, cut a long CS piece (preferably 8-1/2" x 3/4"). There are NO scoring measurement since this is a custom box where NO boxes are alike.

Step 5: The little handle - made with a Round Tab Punch and a Horizontal Slot. Just fold the round tab tip outward and glue onto the box! Ain't that easy!
